    This episode is the first “Stories In Colour”, a collection of conversations and stories from some of my favourite guests, packaged neatly in this special episode. Let me know what you think and maybe I will do some more lost tapes episodes.
     



    We have Alex, who is writer and our resident film expert,  we recorded well over a year ago, pre-pandemic and she talked about her decision to leave London UK and travel across the world and live in Korea. 
    I hope to have Alex on again to talk about living in a Korea as Black women, including culture, dating, food, work and more #BlackWomenTravel
     
     



    Jumoke is always great guest having lived and worked both in Nigeria and the UK. But this was a great conversation about how we met and didn’t like each other. Explore adult friendship and applying love languages to your friendship groups.
